The Sims 4 Pronouns Update - Patch Notes

We didn’t just meet you, but it was crazy. We hope you enjoyed the visit from Callia Maebey! All kidding aside, summer is almost here and we’ve got an amazing update to share with you this month!
Not only do we have bug fixes to share, but we’re also releasing the new feature of Customizable Pronouns in The Sims™ 4!
Let's dive in and see what's included in this update.The Sims Team
Customizable Pronouns Now Available in Create a Sim
As of today, you will be able to customize your Sims’ pronouns in Create A Sim (CAS) in The Sims 4 if your game client is set to English.
To change the pronouns for your Sim, simply click on the ‘Hello, my name is…’ tab next to the plumbob. You’ll see the ‘Custom Pronouns’ drop down menu where you’ll be able to select from They/Them, She/Her, He/Him, and Custom Pronouns.
If you’ve chosen to use custom pronouns the feature will automatically change pronouns that show up when referring to the Sim to match what you’ve chosen. While the feature has been fully tested, there may be instances where the incorrect conjugation of pronouns or the default pronoun of the assigned gender may still appear due to the intricacies of grammar in English. They'll be working to improve the feature over time.
Initially, the customizable pronouns feature will only be available in English, however they plan on rolling out the feature to all 18 languages over time. At launch, custom pronouns can be uploaded to the Gallery and used in English only.
For this first iteration of the feature they focused on pronouns. While pronouns are a very important piece when it comes to greater inclusivity for The Sims 4, they understand that customizable pronouns will not make the game 100-percent gender neutral. You will still see instances of gendered language in the game such as mother, father, policeman, policewoman, etc.
Making The Sims 4 more inclusive of gender neutrality is an ongoing learning and development process for EA and they will continue to update this feature over time.
